About Fraud Filter
What is Fraud Filter?
Fraud Filter can provide an additional layer of protection to help you fight fraud and avoid chargebacks. By using Fraud Filter's simple rule-based functionality you can easily set up warnings for suspicious orders, or block orders completely.
What does the app do?
When an order match a filter you've created Fraud Filter will flag it as suspicious to warn you or automatically cancel it for you, depending on what action you've chosen. When Fraud Filter flags an order as suspicious it will mark the order as medium risk, and you'll be able to tell which filter that was triggered from the fraud analysis section on the order page.
How does it work?
With Fraud Filter you can create filters and rules based on order details you suspect could be suspicious and want to review or black. And it's all integrated into your store admin. Each filter consist of one or more rules that needs to be met for the filter to be triggered on orders.
As an example you could configure Fraud Filter to flag orders from a specific country that have an order value greater than 200 USD so you can review them before fulfilling. When an order is placed that match your rules Fraud Filter will automatically follow the instructions you've set up and either flag it as suspicious or cancel it.
If you receive an order which has details you would like to create a filter with you can easily do this from the order page. Click the more actions menu, and chose the 'Create fraud rule' which opens Fraud Filter and allows you to edit your new filter before saving. You can at any time add new filters, edit or delete existing ones, or view which orders that have triggered a certain filter.
Installing Fraud Filter is easy, and free. The app is directly integrated with the admin of your store. Read the FAQ listed on this page for step by step intstructions with supporting screen shots.

Stopped working... It was good for my needs when I tested and set it up. But now I just received a fraudulent order today that *would have* been caught by my filters, but wasn't.
For whatever reason, Fraud Filter has disappeared from the order details page. It doesn't show up under the Fraud Analysis portion for any of my orders anymore and isn't running my rules. It did when I first set it up. What the heck?
I can absolutely confirm Absolute Scientific LLC's review that this particular app does NOT do anything in regards to blocking suspicious/fake emails. Shopify support suggested me to install this app but seriously this does absolutely nothing against fraudulent actions of users.
Blacklisting emails and other information comes builtin in other CMS platforms and Shopify doesn't. This is highly condemnable when it comes to security! On top of that, I was suggested to install a paid app to get these features! Are you kidding me when it comes to security?!

This app should be called, "voluntarily share your customer's info with us, and we'll do nothing for you in return Filter." I need an app that can block specific customers, and also block sales to specific states and zip codes. Fraud Filter claims it can do that . The rules that I set up, were made to do that, but, this app does NONE of those things. This is just a scheme for them get your customer's metadata. It's completely useless for anything else. Clearly the 5 star reviews are fake. Don't use this app. It's a fraud. You've been warned.
